..\ At Grave's End
Avon Mass Market
It's getting harder for Cat Crawfield to do her job. Being the only half-vampire in the world makes her too easily identifiable, so that even hair dye and colored contacts can't camouflage her identity from her vampire prey. So her boss uses the vampire Belinda as bait, but she betrays them and must be terminated.
Cat's vampire lover Bones has a full life as well. His grandsire, the ancient and powerful vampire Mencheres, decides to share his powers with Bones because of a coming vampire war. And on the night of the power exchange, the war begins in the massive bombing of Mencheres' home. For their enemy is another ancient and powerful vampire who has a history with both Mencheres and Bones, and she won't rest until they're both dead.
The stakes are higher emotionally in this latest Night Huntress tale, as her coworker with a crush pushes her to see him as more than a friend, and as her love for Bones continues to flower. This series is not for those with weak stomachs-- there's a lot of blood, gore and death-- but readers with the stomach for it will find themselves putting off bedtime to finish this addictive tale. I think I've found a new favorite author!
